Pi­cric Peter

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Trout at twilight -

Hook Size 8-14 wet-fly Rib Oval gold tin­sel Body one third – red seal fur; two thirds – olive green seal fur mix Body hackle Pi­cric cock Wing Hen pheas­ant sec­on­daries, dyed yel­low Head hackle Brown hen, dyed golden olive The Green Peter is one of the most fa­mous Ir­ish trout flies for good rea­son. This vari­ant is one of my favourites: when wet it sug­gests an emerg­ing sedge pupa. Fish it with con­fi­dence in a good wind on the top drop­per of a wet-fly cast. It will also per­form on the tail.
